Vereda (Boman) Albright

May 12, 1928 ~ May 23, 2019 (age 91)

 Waterloo - Vereda M Albright was born on May 12, 1928 in Edgerton, Ohio to Clide and Ruth Boman. Moving to Waterloo her senior year of high school she remained in Waterloo until 2015. Vereda spent the last four years in the world of dementia until her body finally rested on May 23, 2019. After completing business school Vereda married Bob Albright – a happy marriage of 59 years ending with Bob’s death in 2007. Mom was a true 1950s wife and mom raising five kids and contributing to the community as a Sunday school teacher, PTO president, advocate for special needs students, President of the Waterloo town board (we called her mayor that year), Little League concession stand manager and dependable school chaperon. Mom was never a Girl Scout leader because she hated crafts. She was a lifetime member of the Waterloo United Methodist Church and member of the Progressive Literary Club. In the 1960s she returned to the working world as a co-owner of Boman and Albright. After retiring with the kids out of the house, Mom and Dad really had a good time. IU football and basketball season ticket holders for over 40 years, they traveled extensively visiting kids and grandkids along the way. Travels also included cross country driving and train trips with friends, attending Cub games, and working for Democrat politicians and social justice. Surviving are five children: Joni Albright of Indianapolis, Ellen Meyer of Auburn, Brian Albright of Hamilton Lake, Lee (Karen) Albright of Ft. Wayne, and Adam (Tammy) Albright of Westerville, Oh. Five grandkids: Theo Lutz (Amanda) of Washington DC, Clark (Kate) Albright of Virginia, Jessica Albright of Virginia, Audrey Albright of Chicago, and Madeline Albright of Ft. Wayne. Two great grands: Ted and Caroline Lutz of DC: brother in law, George DeLong and nieces and nephews. She was preceded in death by her parents, sister Nancy DeLong and brother Jerry Boman. Services will be 10AM Tuesday May 28, 2019 at Feller and Clark Funeral Home, 875 South Wayne Street, Waterloo, IN with burial to follow in Waterloo Cemetery. Calling is Monday from 4 to 7 at the funeral home. The family would like to thank August Cottage staff and DeKalb County Hospice staff. All of her health care providers referred to her as feisty. The family takes that as a complement. In lieu of flowers, donations can be directed to the Albright Literary Fund at the Waterloo Grant Township Library or just pay it forward by doing something kind for someone.
